Big collaborations flood the final Top Tracks list of August.
Can we finally breathe a sign of relief after what's proven to be a crazy August? The past month has given us DJ Khaled's Major Key, Lil Uzi Vert's The Perfect Luv Tape, 2 Chainz's Daniel Son, Necklace Don, PartyNextDoor's P3, Rae Sremmurd's SremmLife 2, Frank Ocean's Blonde and Endless, Tory Lanez's I Told You, Vince Staples' Prima Donna, and Young Thug's No, My Name Is Jeffery, which is an absurd amount of good music. We've still probably got Travis Scott's Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight on the way at some point (don't hold your breath though), but as for now, it looks like we've hit a well-deserved lull in 2016.
The tracks keep rolling in though. Barely missing out on a spot in this week's top ten were the new tracks "Wild Love" by Cashmere Cat, The Weeknd, and Francis And The Lights (#11), Lil Wayne and Juelz Santana's "1 Arm" (#12), Vince Staples' "'06" (#13), and French Montana's remix of Young M.A.'s "OOOUUU" (#15). Here's the top ten:
10. Usher Feat. Master P, Travis Scott, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz & A$AP Ferg - No Limit (G-Mix)
For "No Limit," the first single from his upcoming album Hard II Love, Usher tapped into Atlanta's younger generation by enlisting Young Thug for a guest verse, but also paid homage to one of the South's legends, Master P. For the "G-Mix" of the song, he continues to straddle that balance, getting P himself to pop up alongside the region's new school (and A$AP Ferg). The remix of "No Limit" moves up one spot from its debut at #11 to land at #10 on its second week out.
9. Mac Miller Feat. Anderson .Paak - Dang!
This track's had quite the up-and-down ride in its five weeks out. It didn't make our top ten in its first week out, but landed there in its second, then dropped off, and now it's back again. Y'all hungry for more Mac Miller or something? The Divine Feminine should hopefully be dropping soon. In its fifth week out, "Dang!" finishes at #9.
8. Lil Uzi Vert - Buy It (Prod. By Zaytoven)
Uzi first linked up with Zaytoven for two tracks from his recent Perfect Luv Tape, and now we've got a third collab, which could very well be culled from the same sessions. "Buy It" is a perfect blend of their respective signature styles, and has us excited to hear future collabs from this cross-generational pair. This track debuts at #8.
7. Travis Scott - Black Mass (Prod. By Murda Beatz)
Still no Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight, but La Flame's most recent tracks keep rolling on in its absence. "Black Mass" is one of two that were shared on an episode of Scott's Beats 1 show, ".WAV," two weeks ago, but the radio rip has since been taken down. In its second week out, "Black Mass" jumps up five places to land on our Top Ten at #7.
Back on No, My Name Is Jeffery's original release date, Young Thug said he was delaying the album to get a new verse from Travis Scott. That didn't arrive by the time it actually did come out on August 25th, but the next day, we got this updated version of "Floyd Mayweather" with a new La Flame verse. It makes its debut at #6.
5. DJ Khaled Feat. Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Future, August Alsina, Jeremih & Rick Ross - Do You Mind
The longest-tenured song on this list by a long shot now that Desiigner's "Tiimmy Turner" has plummeted to #54 in its sixth week out, DJ Khaled's "Do You Mind" has now appeared in our top ten for five weeks straight. What's more, it actually rose from last week's #8 spot, finishing at #5 this time around.
4. Migos Feat. Young Thug - Cocoon (Remix) (Prod. By Cheeze Beatz)
Migos (minus Takeoff) are all over Thugger's new album, so it's only fitting that he repaid the favor in the form of a feature on a remix of their "Cocoon" song from a few months back. This one's got me wishing that MigoThuggin actually saw the light of day, but like Metro Thuggin, it appears to have been locked away in the 300 vault. The "Cocoon" remix debuts at #4.
3. Travis Scott - The Hooch (Explicit/CDQ)
"The Hooch" has proven decidedly more popular than "Black Mass" in the lead-up to BITTSM, with its production dream team (Boi-1da, Allen Ritter, and Vinylz) supplying Scott with a vibrant instrumental that he manages to whip into a frenzy. If the album's got more of this, you can be sure it'll be a hit. In its second week out, the CDQ of "The Hooch" drops from #1 to #3.
2. Jeremih Feat. Chance The Rapper, Young Thug & The Weeknd - Pass Dat (Remix)
This remix covers so many bases that it's impossible to dislike. Jeremih's Late Nights standout attracted the attention of Thugger and The Weeknd a while ago, with a remix from the former rumored, and one actually arriving months ago from the latter, but the Chance addition was unexpected, although the two Chicagoans have collaborated many times before. In its second week out, the "Pass Dat" remix rises four spots from #6 to #2.
1. Drake - You Know, You Know (CDQ) (Prod. By Kanye West)
Surprise, surprise, Drake's at the top again. That was sarcasm, but what actually is surprising about this recently-unearthed track from the Thank Me Later sessions is that it's the lowest-rated song on the top ten by users this week. Drizzy and Kanye, both usually sure-shots for at least a 75% approval rating, only mustered 63% this time. They must not really miss the old Kanye, or old Drake. "You Know, You Know" debuts at #1.
